Maybe LB is worse than they are leading his injury to be..? If it's only a week or two, we have ROCK.

SHAUN TO GET A NEW GIG, FINALLY?
Posted by Mike Florio on October 13, 2008, 7:35 p.m.

Months after being unceremoniously cut by the Seahawks, former league MVP Shaun Alexander might soon be reuinted with a guy who knows a thing or two about him.

Per Adam Schefter of NFL Network, Alexander will visit the Redskins on Tuesday. If he passes a physical, he could be under contract by the end of the day.

The ‘Skins are concerned about a knee injury to backup running back Ladell Betts.

Alexander previoulsy drew interest from the Bengals, Lions, and Saints. He expressed optimism that he’d have a new team after the first week of the season, but remains unattached.

In Washington, Alexander would play for former Seahawks quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn, who returned to Seattle in 2001, a year after Alexander was drafted.

re: Redskins Sign Shaun Alexander (Merge) *updated*

I heard the reason Alexander wasn't signing with anyone was because he didn't want the backup role? Personally I'm not too fond of this move but I will give him the chance to prove me wrong. I won't be suprised if he plays the way he did his last year in Seattle though.

SA might not be a bad pickup and provides good depth until Betts is back.

Wow. I smell IR coming for one Malcolm Kelly....

Reason I say this is because if we sign Alexander I don't think he'll be cut in a few weeks when Ladell comes back.

At the price, I think this is a good move because if Alexander proves everyone wrong and doesn't run like a pussy, we have a GREAT backup RB at a bargain price through next year.

And if he sucks, we cut him.

Say we sign him- what happens with the 53 man when Betts comes back?

EDIT: to answer my own question, Insider reporting that Justin Tryon, Justin Hamilton or Rob Jackson could move to the practice squad.

Meh. I doubt he even passes Rock on the depth chart. But if Betts has to go on IR then we'd need a third anyway.

re: Redskins Sign Shaun Alexander (Merge) *updated*

This move does'nt exactly excite me. Kelly had fluid drained from his knee and may be put on IR in a couple of weeks depending on his progress, but if he is , the thought is picking up another wide receiver. We're not giving anything up for Alexander so I guess it's not a panic move like Duckett was. I have my doubts about this move, seems like Rock always gets the shaft. Hope I'm wrong.
